6:02 am
this terrorist threat saying danger awaits any one coming to russia for the games. the two men in the video are reportedly the suicide bombers responsible for last month's bombing in russia. in this video they claim to have a surprise for the tourists and that will be, quote, revenge for all of the muslim blood that is shed every day. these men are believed responsible for this train station bombing and another bombing that claimed the lives of 34 people. despite president putin's promise of 40,000 officers some lawmakers say it's too dangerous to go. >> i would not go. and i don't think i would send my family. >> i'm very concerned that if something does happen what is the evacuation plan and nj response plan that would take place? >> countering this message a bit
6:03 am
of a bright spot as we look that the new video just in of the olympic torch representing the games and the peaceful sportsmanship that they represent, carried through that very town. this happened this morning there. u.s. officials are studying the video, they say they are taking it seriously. this on the heels of a strong travel advisory issued for americans planning on traveling to sochi for the olympics. >> these threats, terror threats, unsettling for the olympic athletes and their families who are going to attend the games. coming up at 6:45 how a southern california family is taking precautions cheering on their son during the bobsledding competition. we'll have that at 6:45. >> 6:03. it is official. seattle sauks take on the denver broncos. the game has a crushing win in

6:05 am
teammate for the game ending intercepti interception. >> making sure everybody knew that crabtree was a mediocre receiver. mediocre. and when you try the best corner in the game with a mediocre receiver that's what happens. game. >> you valleys to see sherman's rant, hollering rant to the sideline reporter. if you haven't seen it we'll show it to you in about 45 minutes. crabtree responded saying films don't lie. pull the tape of that game and show me where this guy is the best. responding to sherman boasting about how great he was on the field. bob redell, "today in the bay." >> he had one good play but it was the play that counted. >> i'm kind of done with sherman. >> yes. the niners were able to contain marshawn lynch. >> all of that changed with one
6:06 am
play. mindy and matt in seattle. >> 49ers and seahawks came in both featuring very good running backs, among the top in the nfl and for the most part, matt, the 49ers defense able to hold lunch in check until he busted through the 40-yard touchdown run, the longest of the 49ers allowed all season long. frank gore, couldn't get him running. >> as much as we talk about colin kaepernick and -- the running attacks, frank gore got shut down by the seattle seahawks. and the 49ers defense did a good job on marshawn lynch except for one play, and in a game like this, that one play was enough. 40-yard touchdown run, advantage goes to lynch. the advantage goes to the seattle seahawks, that's why they are moving on to the spol. >> you dornt want your quarterback to be the leading rusher and frank gore not able
6:07 am
to help in that situation. what was more difficult for this team are the injuries that it incurred that will carry over to next season. we saw left guard go down but could be defensive player of the yeerks up for that, the middle linebacker, bowman. how much will his injury impact the team and how long. >> there is a tough blow for the 49ers in the locker room. not only losing the game but seeing their best player throughout this entire season go down with a torn acl. so this is going to be quite a rehab. all the off season, the goal is to have him ready for the start of the 2014 season. certainly at this point the surgery will be coming up in the next few days. this is something that will be rehabbed throughout, certainly no guarantees at this point. >> very difficult and to a very good season.

[ female announcer ] now get two bonus box tops for your school. well, it's official. the denver broncos will take on the seattle seahawks in this year's super bowl. the game that's pushing the seahawks forward was crushing down to the wire over the 49ers for the nfc championship. bob redell is live at 49ers team headquarters, the players, bob, are going to clean out the lockers later today. >> reporter: yes, unfortunately that clean-out is taking place today, scott, not two weeks from today which would be after the super bowl. the team will be back here later
6:44 am
this morning for a team meeting, and then yes, they will take out their personal items from the lockers here at the training facility in santa clara. here is the team, they arrived back to the bay area last night seen here disembarking from their charter flight after that heart breaking loss to seattle of 23-17. about with 100 fans greeted the players, cheered them on as they retrieved their cars and headed back home for the night. again, they will be back later this morning, team meeting, then clearing out the lockers. the 49ers came so close to beating the seahawks with seconds left colin kaepernick passed to michael crabtree for what looked like was going to be a touchdown but seattle's cornerback stanford grad richard sherman batted that ball to his teammate for the game-ending interception. sherman no means a favorite of the 49ers fans. not because of what he did on the field but because of what he
6:45 am
said after. >> i'm the best corner in the game. when you -- that's the results you going to get. >> reporter: translation, sherman basically boasting about how great he played, later on he called michael crabtree a mediocre receiver. crabtree went to twit to respond typing, films don't lie, pull the tape of that game, show me where this guy is the best. reporting live in santa clara, bob redell, "today in the bay." $thank you. >> for the most part it appears it was a calm night in san francisco. they only made a handful of arrests after the loss. extra officers were called in but the party seemed to fizzle out. so did the crowds once the game was over. >> ed lee issued the statement we would have liked a different outcome but we're grateful for the team's amazing last season at candlestick park this year, that will forever be remembered
6:46 am
for the thrills and excitement on the field from the first game until the last. what do the 49ers need to do moving forward? >> mindy bach is in seattle along side ray raddo with a look where the team goes. >> 49ers reached the nfc championship three straight years under jim harbaugh and reaching the super bowl once. we know they make it to the playoffs, the 49ers have a difficult time finishing those games and finishing the job when they need to. what do you take from that? >> that they are almost but not quite truly elite. they won 41 games in three years which is a difficult task to perform. when the chips are on the table you can't play one half. you are measured in the postseason by what you do against the best teams in football. and three times now in their final game they have not been able to play a complete game.
6:47 am
and frankly, in a world where you are graded very harsh think. you have to come up big. >> where does the team go from here? what will be key to get back to the sfwhol >> i think their defense is fine. it is the elite part of this team. but they have to figure out a way not to rely on it to save them in games after games where they only get two touchdowns. this is a high powered league now. you've got to be able to put points on the board and they don't do that often enough. 23 is not good enough week in and week out. they have to be able to do better than that, they have to get more creative offensively, get colin kaepernick to be more precise as a passer and got to be able to either figure out how to get frank gore so he don't have difficult games or get a running back as good as marshawn lynch is.
6:48 am
>> another difficult loss after a solid 12-4 regular season. ray, thanks for a great season. hopefully next year we'll have other positive things to talk about. i'm mindy bach, nbc bay area. >> thanks so much. just because our football season end it. >> we are less than a month away. yes for major league baseball spring training. pitchers and catchers report on february 14, then the full squad reports february 18. >> the a's, pitchers and catchers on february 14 as well. and position players report on february 19. see, always something to celebrate. >> absolutely. i know you are a big giants fan. >> that's what i'm talking about. can't wait. in case you don't know it you taked the right station if you're a giants fan.
6:49 am
